Topic Of Discussion: How To Do The Write Thing Right Now!!!

The Zora Neale Hurston/Richard Wright Foundation - the nation's resource center for writers, readers, and supporters of Black literature. The only organization of its kind that provides culturally sensitive services and guidance for Black writers at every stage of their development.

What Is Our Mission?
Founded in 1990 by novelist Marita Golden and bibliophile Clyde McElvene, the Foundation’s mission is to discover, develop, and honor Black writers. The programs of the Foundation preserve the legacy and ensure the future of Black writers and the literature they produce. The Foundation was named for two geniuses of American and world literature, Zora Neale Hurston and Richard Wright.

Why Is Our Work Important?
Historically, the African American community has lacked viable institutions dedicated to supporting creative writing either as an artistic expression or a professional endeavor. No educational institution, professional organization, or existing non-profit has responded to this need as comprehensively as the Hurston/Wright Foundation. The Foundation is the only organization in the nation that provides culturally sensitive services and guidance for Black writers at every stage of their development.

Since 1990, the Foundation has created a wide range of new opportunities for Black writers. In the process, the organization has also increased the awareness and appreciation of Black literature, while simultaneously serving underserved areas of the Black community, and increasing the appreciation of literature.

Who Is Involved?
The Hurston/Wright Foundation is led and supported by a diverse board of directors and an advisory board of notables from the national literary community that includes Toni Morrison, Henry Louis Gates Jr., Terry McMillan, Chinua Achebe, E. Ethelbert Miller, and hundreds of community volunteers.
